Which is the best one to get for sowing seeds? Mostly perennials for over wintering and various cuttings including Honeysuckle,Fuchsia and geraniums 

Plant ID request.

Thanks for the advise  Verdun I have three climbing yellow roses two around the porch and one outside the back door.Three very tall old leggy (1 floribunda) roses dotted about the place too. Hopefully I can rescue them.

I've got blackspot on my roses (they're all quite old plants) What does everyone think is the best way to deal with it? I know Verdun will probably say "dig em up!" but I'm rather fond of them.

But I don't know what they are or if I should deadhead them or just let them die back

Any ideas?



Are you eating your home grown fruit and veg yet?

Harvested the garlic (bit disappointing) they were smaller than iI expected but quite pungent. Brought in some courgettes from the poly tunnel and made courgette carbonara with some thyme leaves from the garden. Delicious!
